The next installment in Ubisoft's Watch Dogs series is, indeed, set in a post-Brexit England. Watch Dogs: Legion leaked ahead of E3, so rather than spend a ton of time on revealing the game, Ubisoft spent a decent amount of time giving us a ton of gameplay, including a highlight reel on how you can recruit others to your campaign, and nice walkthrough of the game.
First up, the worldwide reveal trailer.
Watch the world premiere trailer of Watch Dogs: Legion. In the near future, London is facing its downfall: the people are being oppressed by an all-seeing surveillance state, private militaries control the streets, and a powerful crime syndicate is preying on the vulnerable. The fate of London lies with you, and your ability to recruit a resistance and fight back.
Ubisoft then took us on a long walk through the world of Watch Dogs to show off the game in action. We got a ton of action, narrative and dialogue moments, and even some awesome cinematic shots.
Watch the very first gameplay reveal of Watch Dogs Legion.
Watch Dogs: Legion delivers a never-before-seen gameplay innovation that allows you to recruit and play as anyone you see in the iconic city of London.

Bring your characters online and join forces with friends to take back London in four-player co-op missions, end-game challenges, and daily events. Welcome to the Resistance.
As for the unique gameplay mechanic for Legion, Ubisoft took us to school to show how the game will allow players to "recruit and play as anyone you see in Watch Dogs: Legion."
